The closest either side went in the opening half to a goal was a header from Joël Matip which rattled the crossbar and the woodwork again saved Inter after the break when the ball broke to Mo Salah and he hit the post with the goal gaping.
The Nerazzurri made the most of those reprieves on the hour mark when Lautaro Martínez, who ended his lengthy scoring drought last week, blasted a stunning strike across Alisson and into the top corner to stun Anfield.

But Inter’s optimism lasted less than 60 seconds before Sánchez was shown a red card for catching Fabinho on the ankle with his studs, having already been booked for a similarly poor-timed tackle in the first half.
Salah then hit the post for a second time on the night as Liverpool were denied by the frame of the goal for a third time, again from a position where the Egyptian would have expected to score but the misses didn’t come back to haunt the Reds, who saw things out to progress.
